Don't believe all the haters. Roy is kind of a pretty boy, and that made him unpopular in Buffalo.

On the ice, however, he always played hard and was a consistent producer, year in and year out. He was constantly trying to make things happen on offense. Very good all-around puck skills, solid two-way game, and can play in all situations, including the PK. Aside from his big quad tendon tear, he was rarely injured. He is also known for having incredible stamina - he doesn't get gassed easily.

The cons are a lack of physicality and a tendency to hold onto the puck too long. Not amazing at face-offs either. Other than that, Roy should be a great asset to your team. He was HIGHLY under-appreciated in Buffalo.
